Census 2021

The census is a survey that happens every 10 years and gives us a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales. The next census takes place on Sunday 21 March 2021.

The answers to the census questions will help organisations make decisions on planning and funding public services in your area, including transport, education and healthcare.

The last census took place in 2011. Many people and organisations used information from the 2011 Census in a variety of ways. Local authorities use census data to ensure the sizes of social groups interviewed in its own consultations are representative of the demographic make-up of the area. Data is also used to inform decisions on how to fund local housing improvements and to help people from ethnic minority groups learn more about dementia etc.

In coventry we have 7938 unpaid carers and we wouldn't have known about it without the last census data.

You are required to complete census by law and it is important that all of us fill this in as this is the only way we get accurate statistics.

You could fill the census today and don't have to wait till 21st March 2021.

Complete the census and more information.
